It is recognised that coercive control is a key feature of abusive relationships. It is therefore essential that the conceptualisation of coercive control and the impact it has on the whole family is recognised and understood. This review, written by SafeLives – a national charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse for good – is concerned in particular with coercive and controlling behaviour within the context of public and private law proceedings.
